They were going to take their home games on the road in Europe.

It does beg the question about what their fans want/expect in the longer term.
IF they gain promotion and have to play 3/4 "home" games elsewhere, their home fans are getting desperately short changed, with only 9 ? home games to watch and lets face it, they aren't going to travel to too many away games.

The climate over there isn't going to change, therefore, they will be signing up for 3/4 of a season :CRAZY:

I don't think they care you could see them milling around all the game to the beer tents I'd thought they might of wanted to sit and understand the game a bit more

Personally pleased they didn't make it.
Hope they don't next year.
If they want RL then they should start their own league.
It's too ridiculous for words, to see them as part of our SL, and so typical of the RL to think this is the right way to expand the game.

This. If Toronto were an hours flight away like Catalans, I'd have no problem.8 or so hours is ridiculous:

Totally agree with this. Is it even an expansion? How many Canadians are in the Toronto team?

Spot on Trinity. I agree 100%. If Rugby League is what they want then start their own league and play their games on an alternate home and away basis like the rest of us. Haven't they heard of underground heating over there?

I guess you could have argued that about catalans and London. Even now all the pivotal positions (1, 6, 7, 9, 13) at Catalans are mostly occupied by non-french players in their games.

Give them time and they will produce their own as Catalans and London have
